Will this dream ever become reality?
DT said: "If I were really really going to hammer out the miles on a single speed, it would be the absolute lightest, crazy assed flying machine possible. Period. I will use mine to rip the local rolling park after work, and the sex appeal of steel is what I crave."

So the 29er crowd got their Sultan. When will the SSers get their fix? I need a 3rd Turner for my winter training. What would it be called anyway?

I've seen pictures of a Nitrous SS in the Turner Shop, so I know that exists (I think it was a Nitrous). What's wrong with a suspension road bike? There's nothing wrong with taking the occasional dirt road.;)

Harriet - I think you mean "Tomboy specific" design.;)
I've always been a little suspicious of the whole WSD concept - really it's more like shorter stem, fatter grips, wider saddle with more gel and 165mm cranks. Nothing you can't wrench yourself at home.
A SS Nitrous wouldn't really fit the bill unless DT had some made out of Reynolds 853, OX, or 631. SS demands steel or Ti IMO.

yeah...it's the 'lets PC it pink but then putt crappier components on it than the reg version, and charge a couple hundred more' concept. very clever! :rolleyes:

They make a women's specific flux in like Small, so you would have to put two together . . .:eek:

Pink is okay if it is the right pink...It cannot be dog-peeter pink, or flat pink nor purple-ish pink or light pink. It must have the right shade and luminescence to it. It has to be Hawt Pink. :thumbsup:

ugh...Pink is such a ghey word if you think about it too long. :rolleyes:
